Twilioの着信リクエストを検証してC# / ASP.NETアプリケーションを安全にする

In this guide we’ll cover how to secure your C# / ASP.NET MVC application by validating incoming requests to your Twilio webhooks are, in fact, from Twilio.

With a few lines of code we’ll write a custom filter attribute for our ASP.NET app that uses the Twilio C# SDK’s validator utility. This filter will then be invoked on the controller actions that accept Twilio webhooks to confirm that incoming requests genuinely originated from Twilio.

Let’s get started!

Create a custom filter attribute

The Twilio C# SDK includes a RequestValidator class we can use to validate incoming requests.

We could include our request validation code as part of our controller, but this is a perfect opportunity to write an action filter attribute. This way we can reuse our validation logic across all our controller actions which accept incoming requests from Twilio.

Loading Code Sample...
      
      
          
          
          
          
        
      Confirm incoming requests to your controllers are genuine with this filter.

      Use filter attribute to validate Twilio requests

      Confirm incoming requests to your controllers are genuine with this filter.

      To validate an incoming request genuinely originated from Twilio, we first need to create an instance of the RequestValidator class. After that we call its validate method, passing in the request’s HTTP context and our Twilio auth token.

      That method will return True if the request is valid or False if it isn’t. Our filter attribute then either continues processing the action or returns a 403 HTTP response for invalid requests.

      Use the filter attribute with our Twilio webhooks

      Now we’re ready to apply our filter attribute to any controller action in our ASP.NET application that handles incoming requests from Twilio.

          Apply a custom Twilio request validation filter attribute to a set of controller methods used for Twilio webhooks.

          Apply the request validation filter attribute to a set of controller methods

          Apply a custom Twilio request validation filter attribute to a set of controller methods used for Twilio webhooks.

          To use the filter attribute with an existing view, just put [ValidateTwilioRequest] above the action’s definition. In this sample application we use our filter attribute with two controller actions: one that handles incoming phone calls and another that handles incoming text messages.

          Note: If your Twilio webhook URLs start with https:// instead of http://, your request validator may fail locally when you use Ngrok or in production if your stack terminates SSL connections upstream from your app. This is because the request URL that your ASP.NET application sees does not match the URL Twilio used to reach your application.

          To fix this for local development with Ngrok, use http:// for your webook instead of https://. To fix this in your production app, your decorator will need to reconstruct the request's original URL using request headers like X-Original-Host and X-Forwarded-Proto, if available.

          Disable request validation during testing

          If you write tests for your controller actions, those tests may fail where you use your Twilio request validation filter. Any requests your test suite sends to those actions will fail the filter’s validation check.

          To fix this problem we recommend adding an extra check in your filter attribute, like so, telling it to only reject incoming requests if your app is running in production.

              Use this version of the custom filter attribute if you test your controllers.
